Recipe: Beer Ice Pops

Cooking with Beer, Recipes -

Summer is nearing the end, but it's still pretty hot out there. Really hot, actually. And while we usually beat the heat by cooling off with an ice cold beer, we think cooling off with an ice cold popsicle is even better. We used Bruxelles Blonde for our raspberry and rose beer pops, but any light ale will do the trick. Here's how to do it. Enjoy the video.

    What You Need

  1. 1/4 cup water
  2. 1/2 cup sugar
  3. 3 tablespoons dried rose buds
  4. 1 pint raspberries
  5. 1 cup Bruxelles Blonde (or any light Belgian ale)

    What You Do

  1. To make a rose simple syrup, add 1/4 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar to a sauce pan on medium heat and mix until sugar is fully dissolved. Turn off heat and add 3 tablespoons dried rose buds and steep for 10 minutes. Strain into small bowl.
  2. Add raspberries and rose simple syrup to food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to mixing bowl.
  3. Add 1 cup of Bruxelles Blonde (or any light ale) and fold into mixture.
  4. Fill ice pop mold and add popsicle sticks.
  5. Freeze and then enjoy!

  • Hi Patrick. We've had very good luck with the Progressive International PLP-1 Freezer Pop Maker.

    If you can't get rose buds what would be a good substitute if that is that possible? Lol

    I tried making your fudgepops with my espresso beer, they wouldn't freeze completely, so had to be eaten out of a dish. Any ideas what might have gone wrong? The beer was about 5.5%, I stirred it several times becuz of the chocolate, left it out for about 1/2 hour to allow any alcohol to evaporate, but that apparently didn't do the trick. The taste was the BOMB!, but all the chocolate powder settled to the tip of the popsicle, so that part was a little bitter, but that's OK with me!
    One more question .... I think I know the answer, but are all your kits 1 gallon and all grain? I couldn't find anything on the website that would specifically answer these two questions. I think I might like to try the Chocolate Maple Porter ;0
    Thanks, Jim
